This happened years ago, but it still bugs me. I was once in a group of people talking about traumas, and I talked about this horrific accident I was a witness to. I held a womans hand while she died. In saying that, As horrible as it was, I don't think I had any sort of ptsd because of it. Anyway...After the group, I had a woman ask me if that was real....I couldn't believe she asked me that. My first thought was...Who would make that up? But then I realized that people do lie (although I didn't). I was just starting ptsd therapy, and I wondered if my therapist would think I was lying if I told him some of the things I went thru that I considered much worse as far as effecting my life. I have this way of feeling guilty for things I shouldn't feel guilty for, and even things I didn't even do. So I never did tell my therapist everything I probably should have. I'm sure he was just as frustrated as I was, when I never really got much better. It's been years now, and I am thinking of going back into therapy, but I still have this fear of "saying too much" does anyone else ever feel this way?
